About a year and a half ago a friend of mine talked to me about Twitter and how he was using it as a learning tool and all the educators he has been able to connect with. I originally blew it off as I thought of Twitter as nothing more than a place for celebrities to post about their life. It wasn’t until last summer that I actually decided to learn how to effectively use Twitter for myself and I started connecting with other educators and school administrators.
What a difference a year has made. The connections I have made and what I have learnt has been astounding. I really have changed more in the last year than in the previous five. I read now more than ever before and am able to voice my opinions about what I read and what I think about various trends in education.
The next step it seems would be to start to blog about my own experiences and thoughts surrounding education and educational leadership. I originally started this blog as an online portfolio when I applied for my current job and had no intentions of turning it into an actual blog. As I said earlier what a difference a year has made. Thanks to all the educators that I have connected with over the last year and all the amazing blogs I have read, because of you I have decided it is time to start and look forward to sharing my experiences with you and hearing what you have to say.
